    Cool. Why would you want to fix that? ;)

    I'd like to know about the zombie mercenary as well! She won't interact with me in any way other than to growl at me about my tasty flesh, but there's no option to hire her and I can't find a token on the NOTD merchants. I even tried buying the zombie doll house item and putting in my house to see if that might unlock the mercenary, but it was just 150 candy corns down the drain. Anyone figured this one out?

    Having asked the same question in the official discord... she's related to the Visions of Vetrovia beta.

    This from a comment Kander made about her. Presumably you would have to do something in the beta to be able to hire her, and no further details have been given on what her tier is or exact class is. As far as I know.

    That said, I also initially thought she was related to NotD.

    Kaitheel, can you have a bit more... padding added to the horseman's armor? He dies so fast on live. He went from attackable to dead in less then 2 minutes and this was first thing in the morning on AB. Makes it hard to get to him before he's dead.

    Sanguine Witch is gone?!!! :(

    No wonder they weren't popping up. I have new characters this year too, I wanted to collect all the witch sets for them, plus the new one for older characters. That is a low blow, seriously! :mad:

    Please remove the requirement of the necklace to start the Horseman PQ next year. It takes too much time to get the necklace and many people are finding the rewards not worth the hassle, so the rest of us miss out or are forced to be the only ones who get necklaces because you can't trade or farm a bagful of necklaces at once since they're lore. Also, because you can't skip cut scenes, the exit from the center of the maze puts you all the way back to the beginning so you have to run alll the way back to get the chest, and the Train quest forces you to run back to the other side of the maze as well, getting the necklace is a prolonged pita.

    Also, it doesn't seem to matter how many times I hit buttons. Sometimes you only get meager rewards (2 items) instead of full rewards (3 items) with the PQ. This is whack and needs to be looked at for next year. If I hit buttons on target doing damage the entire fight, I should be getting full rewards every time.

    Nope. Right-click on the spooky statue at the exit of the center of the maze (inside it), and you have two options that come up: either go back to the entrance (which can be useful) or just leave the center of the maze and wind up just outside the other spooky statue, on the other side of the wall of the center of the maze, in that corridor you go down to get to the first spooky statue on the outside of the center of the maze (the one you can't go down until after the stupid cut scene with the stupid gnome).

    But yeah, if memory serves, you have to do the maze twice (why, I've never understood; why can't we have the dialogue with the stupid gnome right after we kill the thing chasing him the first time?) in order to get the necklace and Appearance shoulders; that's a major PitA. :-/ If I'm misremembering, someone be kind and let me know; I usually do it the second time anyway to get the additional reward house items I want. ;->

    Can't help with the rest of it; I've never done the PQ, having no interest in it. :-/

    Thanks for the right click info, that is nowhere else to be known and I shall add it to the wikia. That'll help a tiny bit. Still, every time I want to do the PQ, I have to get a necklace, because no one else wants to bother doing it since you have to do three quests to be able to get the first necklace, then repeat the zone once every time to get a new necklace in hopes that something will drop from the PQ, which is borked anyway. Would rather this simply be on a timer now and people can show up and participate freely, like every other holiday PQ.
  11. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    Ohhh, yes, that last solution sounds like the most logical by far; why it isn't like every other holiday, is anyone's guess -- waitaminute, is this the one that starts in Antonica, or the one in Nektulos (or does that one start in Antonica and end in Nek...)? 'Cause if it's the one that has the Antonica start, I tried that damn thing ONCE, and gave up on it ever since. I think it was like the first sort of prequel "PQ", but damn, there are entirely too many hoops to jump through for the rewards. X-P
